Vodafone today announces its range of Christmas 2006 consumer handsets offering the widest choice of handsets ever and 3G phones at entry level prices.
Vodafone will now offer 3G handsets to meet a wide variety of customers' needs from premium models to
Vodafone's own branded handset at lower prices, thus expanding Vodafone's 3G consumer services to the mass market. The new line-up includes a great selection of handsets from major brands and a variety of exclusive designs. The handsets are smaller, lighter and have longer battery life. Consumers will also have access to the
newest music and TV services from the extended 3G handset range.
The extended range includes: 24 Vodafone live! with 3G handsets, all offering Mobile TV services
14 Vodafone live! with 3G handsets offering Vodafone Radio DJ, Vodafone's innovative music service.
6 3G broadband consumer handsets from Motorola and Samsung, allowing faster access to multi media services such as mobile TV and full track music downloads, faster download of music and video files and high speed download of emails when the handset is used as a modem for the PC.
10 Vodafone exclusive 3G handsets which include well known European, US and Asian manufacturers. Five of the Vodafone exclusives will be offered at entry level pricing. Vodafone's first own branded 3G handset -- the Vodafone 710 -- will be another phone priced at the lower end to encourage further adoption of 3G services amongst the pre-pay market.
This range also includes Vodafone live! with 3G handsets manufactured for Vodafone by LG for the first time. The two handsets are the LG KU800 - a stylish 3G slider handset with innovative touch keypad - and the LG L600V, at entry level pricing.
